The Choke was a Pachuco invention. The Pachucos were what we called kids who spoke with Mexican accents whether they were Mexican or not and who lived real lives. The Choke looked like a completely Apache, deadly version of the jitterbug only you never thought of the jitterbug when you watched kids doing the Choke. There was no swing in the Choke, it was staccato. It was Pachuco, police-record, L.A. flamenco dancing.

It was all done on the heels.

And the knees, unlike in the dirty boogie, were irretrievably glued together. The arms, instead of being swung were just, when not being used for some split-second-clue maneuver, forgotten about. So the arms fell where they might, as though they belonged to a dead person. The shoulders were hunched up and never relaxed once during the dance so the contrast between the dead arms and the hunched shoulders was kind of sinister like the villain in the movie smiling with a knife in his hand.

I don’t know how Mick and Ronnie and little Mick moved so fast, but they disappeared, leaving me with Jo and Charlie Watts, the world’s politest man. I tried to move him through the sea of sleeping bags, wine bottles, dogs, bodies, and hair. Like a mule in quicksand, he didn’t want to go forward, didn’t want to go back. “Come on, Charlie,” I would say. “Just step right on them, they don’t mind, they can’t feel a thing.” The ones who were conscious and moving about said, “Hello, Charlie,” and Charlie smiled hello…

“He’s really very nice, you know,” Charlie said to me, talking about Gram. “I’ve been talkin’ to him about San Francisco, and the hippies and all that, and he’s got standards, he goes just so far and no farther. And when that girl came in, he stood up just naturally without thinking about it.”

— Stanley Booth, The True Adventures Of The Rolling Stones

Due south of these words lies the key to recreating last Saturday night at The Purple Bat Lounge, nearly 3 dozen tunes’ worth of it, in the comparative safety of your own home. The latter is probably looking a bit over-familiar by this point, so why not change the atmosphere and your mind while you’re at it?  Just click on the little arrow…

I don’t claim I enjoyed those long-ago days very much, they were so full of ridiculous horrors, but there was also this capacity of the universe to delight by turning up, like a beautiful shell on a long empty beach, a kid whose older teenaged sister liked to show off her bare breasts, or a boy who could take a drag off a cigarette, pinch his mouth and nostrils shut, and force smoke out through his ears. What happened to them? The boy whose hands were an optical illusion. His hands looked reasonably proportioned and complete, they were unremarkable until you looked closely and discovered that each hand had only three fingers, plus a thumb. But if you asked me, “Which finger was missing?” I couldn’t have chosen. All his fingers seemed to be there.

— Denis Johnson, The Name Of The World.

And so, per local custom, DJ’s Reeshard and Lee-Roy cherry-picked 36 of their favorite tunes from the past 2 dozen N.C.I.P. episodes as yet another 25th show milepost was rounded. Lee-Roy answered yet another listener’s question, Uncle Morty delivered yet another potent canister and, all told, a reasonable time was had given the circumstances.

After breakfast Julie decided to take Peter to the Jardin du Luxembourg.

“I don’t want to go,” said the boy.

“Do as I say! Get dressed.”

Julie stamped her foot. Peter shrugged.

“Is it true, what Marcelle says, that you were in the nuthouse?”

Julie’s white face got even whiter. Her violet eyes flashed. She took a step toward Peter. The little boy jumped back. He looked at her in alarm. Julie turned on her heel and left the room. A bright flush crept up her throat. In the elevator she pounded the sides with her fist. She went down the hallway and into her room. She crossed it, zigzagging and stumbling and beginning to cry. She was seeing red. She had a photograph in her hand. She tossed it onto the table. She punched the table. She tore off her yellow blouse and her pants. In panties and bra, she circled the room, staying close to the wall and rubbing her head against it. Her tears fell onto her toes. She flung open cabinets. Getting dressed again did nothing to calm her.

— Jean-Patrick Manchette, The Mad & The Bad

…which may or may not nail the vibe of this N.C.I.P. episode. Lots of great tunes as always, alongside predictable banter between Reeshard & co-host Lee-Roy (who requested today’s banner image of Béatrice Dalle, flying in the face of a restraining order sent by her lawyer) and, for whatever it’s worth, another installment of ‘Ask Lee-Roy.’ (We may live to regret the latter.)

Rowe watched them hesitatingly. But it is impossible to go through life without trust: that is to be imprisoned in the worst cell of all, oneself. For more than a year now Rowe had been so imprisoned — there had been no change of cell, no exercise-yard, no unfamiliar warder to break the monotony of solitary confinement. A moment comes to a man when a prison-break must be made whatever the risk. Now cautiously he tried for freedom. These two had lived through terror themselves, but they had emerged without any ugly psychological scar. He said, “As a matter of fact it wasn’t simply the cake which was worrying me.”

— Graham Greene, The Ministry Of Fear.

‘Take care!’ he warned, laughing. You could easily slip here, or lose your balance. The perfect spot for a murder, I always think.’ His laugh sounded so peculiar that I turned to look at him. He came up to me, saying: ‘Suppose I give you a little push … like this -’ I stepped back just in time, but missed my footing and stumbled, staggering on to a crumbling, precarious ledge lower down. His laughing face hung over me, black against the hot sky. ‘The fall would have been an accident, wouldn’t it? No witnesses. Only my word for what happened. Look how unsteady you are on your feet. Heights seem to affect you.’ When we got down to the bottom again I was sweating, my clothes were covered in dust.

Much as we’re not usually given to ‘theme’ shows, we can’t ignore the specter hanging over the landscape. That feeling of playing in the ruins, that school is definitely out, no one knowing when it will convene again. Flocks of large black birds spiral overhead, defining then defying the Coriolanus Effect. They shriek as though in collective pain, and are gone in a moment.  During tornado season Midwesterners routinely experience  a world coming apart at the joins. But that vibe dissipates once the rain begins. Not so today. The feeling we now know — and can’t escape — lingers in empty restaurants and theaters, on freeways reenacting the late ’70s. It rolls outward like an unending tidal bore, past geriatric hippies dressed for a moon landing, doggedly pushing their carts into grocery stores long ago ransacked. At the Purple Bat Lounge, regulars peer through various strains of smoke, regarding an unnerved city from a crack in the front door. They look out, then laugh like broken toys, coughing up years’ worth of accumulated THC and nicotine. “Business as usual,” they snort, summoning another round from bartender LaWanda. Regardless, the music plays on…

We possess neither clairvoyance nor any other form of prescience, but we did suspect there was a reason for delaying the online appearance of Ep. 216…beyond our own procrastination. Then…Voilá! In a mere few blinks of a watery eye, the world’s populace is reduced to shut-in status. Here’s something to entertain all of you, a vivid reminder of what it was like to venture out in public, get trashed in a most righteous style, make profoundly ill-considered decisions and have several kinds of fun while behaving in such a manner. It happened at the Purple Bat Lounge a few Saturdays ago (and will happen again this coming Saturday). Now, it can happen in your own antiseptic spider hole. One  couldn’t take a more effective prophylactic measure to ward off cabin fever. Click below, then just try to tell us we’re wrong…
